SFTIO Blog Hop!


Good morning!! I hope you all have been having a wonderful week! Today is the Blog Hop for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out!!! So exciting, right?! We want YOU to win this beautiful kit - ENLIGHTENMENT....

So what you have to do is go through the DT's blogs, leave a comment to better your chances at winning, and 'like' SFTIO on facebook. Easy Peasy right?


For me Enlightenment is a state of mind, a state of MY mind at least. So I created this LO with that entire concept. Something that is enlightening to me might not be so to you. So I journaled about that, about what enlightenment meant to me, in my own personal life. I have edited my picture by washing it out to create a sense of peace as well as left a lot of white space to represent the calmness I feel that comes along with being enlightened.



It's a simple LO, but represents so much to ME, and that's what SFTIO is all about! Creating meaningful LO's that speak to yourself :)

Once you have left a comment here then head on over to the beautiful Nancy's blog for another chance to win! Good luck!!!
